I used ViaCAD, though you should be able to build the basic shape in most CAD programs. The basic shape of the sled is a simple extrusion along a curve, with some crosspieces added.

Some programs produce better STL output than others, though. You may want to tinker with the settings for STL output, to use more triangles and a finer mesh.

What program did you use to create the tobagon? I am amazed at the fine detail an smoothness, I have not been able to create anything as fine yet. Love the calender btw

I'm thinking I should be getting a kickback from the filament vendors.

It's still early going, but my best guess right now is that the boxes will require somewhere between 500 and 700 grams of green, in total.

I'm starting to worry about having enough tree-green for another 22 days.
